I'm totally with Stephan regarding this. The three existing modes implement consistent window focussing and raising policies. I really don't see the point in introducing more or less hidden features to make any of the modes less consistent.

Regarding the naming of the options, while "activate" should be unambiguous for developers familiar with the interface kit, it might indeed not be obvious for users. The names suggested by Jorge are much better IMO.

Also, just let's add tool tips to settings that can be made clearer with a few clarifying sentences.

+1, leave the options as they are, and add tool tips to make it clearer to the average user what the options mean.
